Climate justice in practice
The effects of the climate crisis are set to have a disproportionate impact on developing countries. Significant attention is now being paid to what should be done, and by whom, to mitigate the consequences and uphold human rights. So what does this ‘climate justice' mean in practice?
To help make sense of these issues are:
- Yamide Dagnet, Director, Climate Justice, at Open Society Foundations, a non-profit that works with organisations and individuals who seek to address profound racial, economic and political inequalities.
- Jacynta Fa’amau, Pacific Regional Campaign Specialist at 350.org, an international movement working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.
- Meredith James, Senior Counsel at Canadian law firm Woodward & Company and a member of the organisation Lawyers for Climate Justice.
